. some say hurricane katrina, which in 2005 devastated the gulf coast of the united states, is evidence that it already has. dr. kerry emanuel of the massachusetts institute of technology has been studying hurricanes for over 20 years. dr. emanuel: i mean, there was nothing meteorologically very exciting or interesting about katrina. what was unusual about it is it hit a very vulnerable place. but people have worried for some years about whether climate change affects hurricane activity. you know, everything from, "well, were there more or fewer hurricanes during the last ice age?" for example. "will there be more or fewer hurricanes if we have global warming?" there's a lot of argument about how this works. narrator: while this argument continues today, historic records do point to a relationship between the recent warming of the oceans and the intensity of tropical cyclones. this graph shows a pronounced upward trend in the total energy generated by hurricanes over the past 50 years. this trend is well correlated with the upward trend in average tropical sea surface temperatu
